Of Swords, paper, and Whisky.

James Sword & Son Ltd. goes way back to 1810, when the Glasgow company first ventured into the Whisky business. Specializing in aging, blending, and bottling, they once owned one of the largest cellars in town right by the River Clyde. It must have been a thing to behold, filled to the brim with bottles ready to be loaded onto ships and sent into the hands of Whisky lovers across the globe. The Bank Note brand came to be during the rise of blended Whisky in the 19th century, when James Sword figured he'd put his giant treasure trove of malt & grain hooch to good use.

Fast forward a good century and a half later and the Bank Note brand is alive and kicking again. This time in partnership with Pacific Edge, under the watchful eye of the descendants of the Walkers and Morrisons, two proper Whisky families. It's nice to see a juice with a pedigree in good, capable hands. It's even nicer to see it in your own, especially with a serious blend like this one ― it has some of that smoky Islay goodness, as well as a touch of Speyside sweetness, some Lowland Grain, and Highland Malt. The 5+ years spent in American oak made sure it's well rested and raring to go.

Corner
Scotch Whisky is almost never aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation, while many times ageing process and flavor finishing is concluded in various wine casks, such as sherry or port.

Tasting Notes

Appearance / Color
Amber

Nose / Aroma / Smell
It's a delicately balanced profile of smoke, fruit, and spice. The Islay smoke shines over vanilla, toffee, jam, and ginger notes.

Flavor / Taste / Palate
The complex palate leads with smoky notes that give way to fruity apple and dark chocolate. A nice and spicy peppery kick balances it all perfectly.

Finish
Finishes long with the smoky notes joined by a nice nuttiness and spice, with just the right amount of heat.
